you know, zenimax, some games that show the username alongside the character name don't have a concept of 'taken' names. since you can kind of tell people apart that way. rather easily, in fact.
how about you either start taking full advantage of the fact that we have mandatory user IDs, or fucking don't have a logout timer on the creation screen. i can NOT be the only person who has trouble thinking of names.

ngl, my brain being bad at names is why i used a name generator for all of my eso characters (and even then it took me a good while). But that logout timer,, pls zenimax, i'm indecisive! let me take a while to be absolutely sure i want my character to look like this!

on a semi-related note, someone referred to my breton as a 'mancubus' yesterday and i'm still laughing over it :lol:

didn't pull an all-nighter but sort of feels like i did.
i forgot how good eso's stories can be. elsweyr isn't really my cup of tea, (pretty much the only things it has that brush on any of my interests is that it came with the necromancy class and exists in tamriel), so pretty much when greymoor was released, just stopped playing for a while. i mean, how satisfying is something really when you know that with one DLC fee you could be having a lot more fun for the amount of time you're putting into something?

i don't regret staying up that late, but i do sort of really want to go back to bed now and can't for atleast another hour and a half.

..oh. right. i suppose elsweyr also had some sheogorath, which also brushes on an interest... but i'm very picky about sheogorath, and tend to judge any encounter with him that doesn't feel like it adds up to his presence in oblivion somewhat harshly. i don't even cut skyrim any slack on that one and i fricking loved that game.
plus it sort of annoys me that they didn't invite the guy who did him and pretty much half of cyrodiil for a part in eso. they got the every-guy from skyrim and that's nice, but.. c'mon, eso. wes did a really good job and it kind of sounds like y'all hurt his feelings.

Just dropping in to say hi. Doing pretty well post-power outage and settling back into life as usual. Today was finally trash day and our fridge/freezer-worth of gross food is gone!

Anyone have any advice for a dog with separation anxiety? He has started crying at night and in the morning pretty consistently and anytime he is in a room alone. We're trying very hard to only interact with him when he calms down to not inadvertently rewards him for the noise, but when it's 5 AM and a dog is howling in your bedroom it is hard to keep to the training routine. I've tried taking him out to do his business just in case that is his issue, but it seems like attention/food is what he wants when he gets loud. He never spent any time alone before (racing kennels until he came to our house) so I understand it is scary for him, but he has to learn to keep his own company sometime. Once the pandemic ends and he goes to his forever home, I doubt they will have time for him 24/7.
Nothing fancy, but I do have a freebies tab you are welcome to peruse once a month.

So, yeah. most of the fence came down last night in a monster windstorm. Even by Santa Ana standards, that was nuts.

Oldest child came home from his dad's last week with a stomach bug. Now it looks like I might be coming down with it.

Omfg the thugs that shot Lady Gaga's dog walker and then stole her dogs is infuriating me right now. Who tf does something like that? :t-cry: I pray they find out who did this to that poor dog walker and Gaga, and that the pups are found safe.

PSA: If you are the owner of a French bulldog, please keep a very close eye on them when you take them out in public. Because they're known to be an expensive and highly-sought-out breed, they are more likely to be the target of a dognapping.

Anyone who steals dogs (and anyone who shoots another person for anything that isn't self-defense or defense of another, for that matter) deserves to have unspeakable things done to them.

-flop- I wish I wasn't the way I am mentally...

EDIT: I also have to work the entire weekend (special hours job) and I'm just... Exhausted I guess. This whole endeavor has been a living nightmare.

My very first experience with going to a doctor in a foreign country.
Back story: I've had a bad cough, congestion, and breathing trouble since January - I knew it was related to the air pollution here so I just ignored it and hoped it'd go away as the air cleared (it didn't)

I get there at 9am, had to fill out a COVID health declaration. I saw an Ear-Nose-Throat doctor who diagnosed me with an upper respiratory infection, but wanted a second opinion so she sent me to see an Internal Medicine doctor to check out my lungs. IM sent me for chest x-rays (at this point I was freaking out because I don't have much money and haven't been paid yet). X-rays come back, I have some inflammation so she diagnoses me with bronchitis and gives me a list of meds (literally 6 different meds) that I need to start taking.
I go back to reception and they start work on filing with insurance. I'm waiting and internally panicking, hoping I can maybe pay them later. Reception calls me up and says "Okay you are good to go, just walk over to the pharmacy and pick up your meds."

Nothing. I paid NOTHING. 2 specialist doctors, a chest x-ray, and meds.... for free?!?!

The US has me messed up when it comes to costs :lol:
